Executing a journey

After you execute a journey in Acquia Journey, your graphs will run in headless mode. In this mode, your graph execution will persist until you terminate it. The Acquia Journey Journey Execution panel displays the current state of all valid, deployable graphs linked to journey steps in a journey map.

Before you can execute a journey through the Journey Mapper, you must create a journey map, and a graph, and then associate that graph with your journey map.

Associating a graph with a journey step

You must have one or more graphs associated with a journey step for a journey to execute. To associate a graph with a journey step, complete the following steps:

  1. Sign in to Acquia Journey.
  2. From the projects list, identify the project you want to modify, and click its title. Acquia Journey will display the Overview tab for your project.
  3. Click the Journeys tab.
  4. In the Journeys section, identify the journey you want to modify and click its title.
  5. In the canvas, click the step you want to associate a graph with.
  6. Above the Edit Step pane, click Execution to display the Associated Graphs pane.
  7. Click Associate Graph.
  8. In the Associate Graph dialog, select one or more graphs to associate with the journey step by clicking the graph name.
  9. Click Associate Graphs.

After associating graphs with your journey steps, you can deploy your journey.

Deploying a customer journey

You can deploy a customer journey and all of its associated graphs by completing the following steps:

  1. Sign in to Acquia Journey.

  2. From the projects list, identify the project you want to modify, and click its title. Acquia Journey will display the Overview tab for your project.

  3. Click the Journeys tab.

  4. In the Journeys section, identify the journey you want to modify and click its title.

  5. In the Journey Execution pane, find the Acquia Journey environment associated with the graphs you want to deploy, then click Deploy. If you want to deploy graphs individually, open the list of deployable graphs by clicking the plus icon to display each graph.

    Note

    To view the Journey Execution pane, ensure that no journey map step is selected in the canvas. Click anywhere in the canvas outside of a journey step to unselect a selected step.

Deploying graphs from this location is equivalent to deploying graphs from the Admin page. If you have more than one Acquia Journey environment, Acquia Journey will display the state of the graphs in each environment.

After the journey begins executing, any metrics associated with your journey’s steps will update in the All Metrics for Journey panel. If you have more than one Acquia Journey environment, Acquia Journey will display a list in the metrics panel to the right of the journey map.
